3rd Blogoversary and Blogging Shift


Today marks my 3 year blogoversary. I’d like to think I grew, a lot, especially in those first two years. But this past year has been a bit turbulent.  When I first started blogging, I saw it as an opportunity to find my place in the world, to have a voice. I loved creating and toying with news recipes then sharing it with all of you and listening to your feedback, praise and advice.

But lately it’s become a chore. I feel obligated to post, to not leave you stranded, but the more I knew I had to write, the less desire I had to do so. I know the shift has been reflected in my writing too. Before I looked forward to painting a pictured and sharing a story. These days, getting the recipe in print seems challenging enough. So I’ve made a decision. I’m going on hiatus.

Now, wait just a minute. This is not the end of Brooklyn Locavore. That I can promise you. I’m not sure how long this break will be–the summer, the rest of the year, maybe until next spring–but I will be back. My hope is that when I return, it will be with rejuvenation, with a new focus and fresh perspective.

So I thank you for these past three years and promise I will return. In the meantime, please seek me out on Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram (yes, I bit the bullet and created an Instagram account). Good bye for now. I leave you with my 10 favorite recipes on this blog of all time. Enjoy!

  2. Your blog is amazing! I just found it trying to change my life around and to give more meaning to the now – with the virus …the world is changing …I guess it had to take a virus to look within and find meaning where meaning resides XXX I see from the comments before mine, you left, and are asked to return…and you promised to do so 🙂 Stay Safe wherever you are XXX I’ll be back looking for a new post 🙂
